My two cents. Tried DE shaving many a year ago after using my fathers gear and found it too hard technique wise and sourcing gear so went back to cartridges. In 2017 I was doing some random surfing on YT and stumbled across some wet shaving videos and decided I'd give it another try. Did most of my shopping via local vendors (TSW, Beard & Blade, MenzBiz...) and the odd overseas vendors when shipping was affordable. Made the usual mistakes, developed RAD as you do when starting up... Randomly stumbled across P&C and enjoyed the friendly banter and focus toward supporting local artisans/vendors so built up the courage to join up. Been a member since late 2017 and haven't looked back! Attended a few Meet Ups where I've met some great guys and had the opportunitiy to share personalexperiences, opinions and sample goodies I wouldn't otherwise try.
Great read @todras
The truth is out there, who are they, where are they, and how do tap into it,
I haves many a razor for lads that have no interest in forums or didn’t know they existed and only found us by Googling etc
I'm just trying to get a descent edge on my valet blade for shave 4 this month
Just have a beer or a cup of tea
